          Hi Charles,  I haven’t tried (setting) the Sybase Mobile Platform (SMP) or the Sybase Unwired Platform (SUP) before.

          I have tried only the SAP BusinessObjects Mobile; but if I read through the Supported Platforms guide (page #2) for the SAP BusinessObjects Mobile in this link:


          it specifies whether the version of SAP BusinessObjects Mobile Client supports the connection based on Sybase Mobile Platform.  Please confirm if it supports the version you have.

            Yes I am running mobile client 6.0.3 and BI 4 with correct service pack.

            I have already go this working direct from client direct to BI no problem, but want to go through SMP using the SMP non legacy setup.

              Charles, have you tried your question here:  SAP for Mobile

              I think someone could give us some thoughts about your requirement- and may be then you can come back and continue at your original discussion that is here:

              BI Mobile through SMP

              Also, you can let us know the steps you’ve followed or what did you refer to configure SMP so may be if anyone knows it already- someone can guide you in case of mis-configuration.
